Food Review | Peach Garden

I guess I'm the sort of food blogger who doesn't go around the island to get a taste of the different variety of food available in Singapore. But I will make an effort to explore a new place when I have a date with my husband or my bestie. And that is when you will see my review. 
Long story cut short. So I brought my husband for a birthday treat here at Peach Garden @ Orchid Country Club which is just a 5 minutes drive from our home. Convenience and also we can get some groceries from NTUC if needy.
Honestly I have no idea of what Peach Garden has to offer but knowing that it is a Chinese restaurant and serves Cantonese cuisine, the variety will somehow be the same as what other restaurants has to offer so it shan't fail us in terms of the quality and taste.

On the other hand, I was really upset for not being able to run in proper. 
I told myself that this year, I'm gonna to pick myself up from where I fell in 2015's run, at the very 1st km of the run. This is really unbelievable. Even till now I don't understand how and why I fell flat. Fate must have been playing a joke on me. And ever since that fall, like after a month, the pain on the ankle starts to creep up on me. Frankly speaking I really don't know if the fall is the main culprit to my suffering for the entire 2016. I can't run nor walk properly without having that pain, going on and off. Went for acupuncture and specialist to get a customized sole, the pain didn't really go off th…

Not forgetting their products such as the revolutionary Series 8 ovens that feature 21 innovative technologies like highly-sophisticated sensors. Too bad I can't get a built-in oven for my kitchen. Maybe can do so if I decided to move house. 
Or you may wan…
